Nothing screams fall more than a Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte. But lets be honest, on a lazy Sunday afternoon when the craving for a warm pumpkin coffee drink comes along, the last thing you want to do is get in your car and drive to the nearest Starbucks. Thats why we’ve created our own pumpkin spiced latte’s at home. Now you can enjoy these in your lazy sunday lounge wear, in your slippers, and in the comfort of your warm and cozy home just like we did. These are our own take on Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes. 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups skim milk
1-2 shots of espresso 
1 1/2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin
sweetener to taste (we used 2 packets of equal)
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon 
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 

Directions: 

1. Combine the milk, spices, pumpkin, sweetener, and vanilla in a small sauce pan and heat over low heat stirring occasionally. When the liquid reaches a simmer you can remove it from the heat and pour into a mug.

2. Next, it’s time to make your foam topping. Whip together another tsp of pumpkin, and another 1/4 cup of skim milk with a frothier. Once you’ve reached the foamy consistency desired, top your milk mixture, and add desired amount of expresso. Finally, top this amazing goodness with a pinch of cinnamon and enjoy!
